About the Author
Jane Ray has been shortlisted three times for the Kate Greenaway Medal. She says of FAIRY TALES, "Illustrating these stories has been the most satisfying of tasks. Fairy tales are the earth beneath our feet, giving us roots and helping us find our place in the world, but they also offer a glimpse of the magical and the enchanted."

Berlie Doherty, a two-time winner of the CArnegie Medal, syas that fairy stories are "enchanted dreams. We remember them as if they had been sung to us while we were under the spell of a long, deep sleep."
